majority eric cantor expressed his opposition to the senate bill before boehner had taken a stand, when the majority leader said out loud what most republicans were thinking about the fiscal cliff bill. there was admiration, the leaks were out, they wondered if a cantor brew was happening. so the rumors, just completely out of control. we'll know soon enough, the house elections thursday. >> yeah, we will know soon enough. and it was also interesting not only on the fiscal cliff deal. but with sandy relief, cantor went and through them right under the bus. cantor is worried about his position and the donors he has in the new york and new jersey area. it is interesting how quickly he brought the long knives out. i don't think that cantor will organize a coup for this week, personally, partly because anyone who is speaker of the house has to deal with the basic dynamics that john boehner is dealing with. and that is not particularly an attractive position for somebody to be in right now. >> there is fox news -- there is o'reilly and krauthammer, bringing them down even further, sayi

the very beginning. you had the eric cantor saying he does not support this bill. and that sent shock waives, really through the washington. as he was making this public and blunt statement. then they had a series of meetings really behind closed doors to get a path forward here. >> yeah. and it was very significant. some people started to speculate. it was just conjecture that there may be a sism between house speaker john boehner and eric cantor. they seem to be much more on the same page much more in the past year or so. it was interesting that they walked down to the final conference meeting. eric cantor and john boehner walked down the center steps to the capitol. to the basement of the capitol soldier to soldier symbolic gesture that they were together and on the same page even though they might see this differently. the house speaker often does not vote on basement john boehner was concerned. he had some skepticism about this bill. but his responsibility as the speaker is to lead. and he didn't see too many ways out of this culled sack. he said look if we can get the vote

john boehner and eric cantor. the atmosphere up on capitol hill has been like the roman senate for a long time now. these folks working together in leadership, but even over a year ago, politico was running an article saying boehner and eric cantor call for a truce, talking about a year of behind the scenes bitter fighting. their staffs were trying to find a way to work together. speaker vote is coming up january 3rd. boehner had a bad beating in the plan "b" vote. you don't think this is going to get better, do you? >> the main thing he has going for him in that rivalry is he has the worst job in the world. >> really, the worst job? >> certainly the worst job in congress. basically, speaker boehner has to sit there and eat a lot of stuff that you wouldn't necessarily eat because there are a lot of republicans who basically want to emote, they want to act up. and speaker boehner just has to take it and try to hammer deals. and eric cantor goes into his role, he has to do the same thing boehner has to do. >> the starting quarterback hates the quarterback. and boehner, if he was smart,

walker, forther head of gao, we saw a couple of votes for eric cantor. three votes for eric cantor among republicans but interestingly eric cantor voted for john boehner. that put to sleep rumors of republicans. for her part nancy pelosi saw four votes from defectors who voted for other figures including one who voted for collin powell instead of nancy pelosi for speaker of the house. in the end, boehner will have enough votes re-elected as speaker of the house. today he gets a fresh start, sue. >> along those lines, eamon, will the speaker change his leadership style or tactics as he has to move forward in these debt ceiling debates? because we have already had some prominent republicans come out and say, it is better it take the united states into a default situation and remedy what ails the country, versus just extending the debt limit once again. how does he circle the wagons, if you will. >> that's right. the thing i'm watching with john boehner is if he tightens the reigns of control. his leadership style today is to let the housework its will. he is not the heavy-handed hammer tha

vote on the senate bill. instead majority leader eric cantor said he won't support the measure. and others left open the possibility of changing the bill. and sending it back to the senate. so how will the twists and turns play out? we turn to newshour regular todd zwillich. he's washington correspondent for "the takeaway" on public radio international, and was there for the senate vote until nearly dawn today. todd, you've probably slept at the capital last night. most of the republicans in the senate voted for this bill. what is the problem that the house republicans have with it? >> well, the house is a fundamentally different place than the senate, judy. remember, this is not the first time we've seen this dynamic. back in february there was the debate over that very payroll tax holiday that is expiring... that has expired frankly at midnight. you got 89 or 90 votes in the senate for that. that deal fell apart in the house. the highway bill got 74 bipartisan votes in the senate. that fell apart. they're two different places. there had been tacit assurances or at least pronouncem

the alternative be? everyone's been thinking about eric cantor who came out and publicly said i don't support this deal and 151 republicans went along with him. so is eric cantor someone who possibly his name could come up here? >> he has been very careful, as have his aides, saying he is the supporting the speaker and he will vote for him tomorrow. that is that. no cantor coup in the works. and the truth is that if in fact there is something that shakes up the leadership, the thinking is that cantor would go with it. would go down with the leadership ship because those who want a change would want a sea change and it is hard to see cantor staying there. you really raise a good point that all this talk about will won't the speaker stay in his job, won't he? well, you have to have a speaker, so if not boehner, who? that is another discussion i'm having privately with a lot of republicans even tonight in the hallways here is that they just don't see who would be the person to replace him, who would be the guy who would be out there. >> all right. thank you very much. obviously dis

appealed squash by a revolt led by eric cantor. although his remarks were brief, they sent shock waves through his conference, which was already extremely skeptical of the agreement, and perhaps looking for a leader. conservative opposition to the agreement stems from a host of issues, including that the deal does not include any spending cuts, would significantly add to the deficit and raise taxes on those making more than $400,000 a year. while the republicans were meeting earlier today, the congressional budget office came out with its scoring of the bill passed by the senate. another four dollars trillion in deficit spending is what they scored its ad for the next nine years, about $330 billion in additional spending. the senate did not pass any spending cuts. those were pushed down for about two months. that is where we stand now, waiting for the house to come back into session. waiting for the house conference to come back from their meeting. perhaps the leadership will speak to the press. we're ready for that. we spoke to our reporter who said that even if the house does c
